Notes & Reviews:

"Ainsley and Burnside give these songs a probing and sensitive reading. Ainsley is in excellent voice, with impressive control over dynamics and phrasing. His top notes tend to be harsher than his middle range, but that is not inappropriate in conveying the bitterness of these songs. Illuminating notes and full texts are included, though with Ainsley's impeccable diction texts are hardly needed. The recorded sound is clear and warm. Song-writing was at the heart of Finzi's compositional life. If you are not familiar with his songs, this is a superb way to encounter them. If you are familiar with them, you will not find a better reading of them anywhere." -American Record Guide
